Configure Unity DI for ASP.NET Identity

You also need to resolve the UserManager. The following is an example how you could do it with the UserManager and the RoleManager. In this sample I use the regular Unity 3 package instead of one of the derivates or bootstrappers (had some problems with them in the past).


private readonly UserManager<ApplicationUser> _userManager;

private readonly RoleManager<IdentityRole> _roleManager;

public AccountController(IUserStore<ApplicationUser> userStore, IRoleStore<IdentityRole> roleStore)
  _userManager = new UserManager<ApplicationUser>(userStore);
  _roleManager = new RoleManager<IdentityRole>(roleStore);

Unity Bootstrapper

var accountInjectionConstructor = new InjectionConstructor(new IdentitySampleDbModelContext(configurationStore));
container.RegisterType<IUserStore<ApplicationUser>, UserStore<ApplicationUser>>(accountInjectionConstructor);
container.RegisterType<IRoleStore<IdentityRole>, RoleStore<IdentityRole>>(accountInjectionConstructor);
